*I'm loving the Lisa Leonard necklace I just ordered from GroopDealz. Click on the link if you want to buy one too; the deal is around for a few more hours. The necklace is called You Can Fly-- and the description is "This little birdie is the perfect reminder that sometimes you just have to take a leap in order to fly." I just could not pass it up. A reminder like that is so vital to a few things going on for our family right now and in the near future. So I informed Pat that he bought me a great gift and thanked him. I even told him I could write a great love not and sign his name to it if he would like, but he said he'd sign it himself ;) For $19, this deal is something I'm loving.
*I'm starting to feel a bit down about how I'm looking lately. I know I'm pregnant and weight gain is normal, I'm just feeling a bit yucky since I can see I'm gaining weight in more places than the belly. (I did with my other pregnancies too of course, but this time I am already seeing it in my face, thighs, arms, butt, etc. And I still have months to go) So this weekend I made a quick trip to a Clinique counter. I have always had dry lips, but right now they are very bad. I picked up All About Lips which feels (and looks) like a moisturizer that you put on your lips. It help to stop them from flaking. So far I'm pretty happy with it. My lips are much less dry. While I was there I also wanted to pick up a new color of the Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm. I have the graped-up color, but wanted something a bit lighter for spring. I bought mega-melon and LOVE it. I highly recommend these little lip sticks.
*Last night we had a hail and farewell with Pat's unit. It was held at the bowling alley on post. We were able to bring the boys. This was their first time bowling, and they had so much fun. When Ryan saw Pat this morning the first thing he said was that he wanted to go bowling again. We'll have to take them again in a few weekends. Maybe I'll snap some pictures next time.
*Tomorrow I leave with the boys to go visit family for two weeks. Originally this was planned when we thought Pat was going to be in the field, but that was cancelled. But then it was still a good plan because our house was supposed to be on the market, and I was going to go house hunting for our next home. Unfortunately, that plan was destroyed by the Army too. So now I am leaving Pat for two weeks without much reason, but on the positive side I get to spend all that time with my family. I am looking forward to seeing them. (However, I'm not looking forward to flying with the boys by myself.)
